concat_affine(1) Concatenate affine transformations


concat_affine [options] x0 [x1 ...]
 WHERE x0 ... xN is [{-i,--inverse}] affine transformation #. (If the first transformation in the sequence is inverted, then '--inverse' must be preceded by '--', i.e., use '-- --inverse xform.path').


This tool computes the explicit concatenation of multiple affine coordinate transformations, each of which can be optionally inverted.
